Want a little spooky?

Come hear some scary ghost stories told by professional storyteller, Alan Irvine.
When? Saturday, October 23rd, 2:00 - 3:00 pm
Where? Coyle Free Library
Who can come? Teens & Adults are invited
What is the cost? IT IS FREE!

About Alan: Many years ago, Alan Irvine worked as a camp counselor in the Louisiana pine woods. One night, after lights out, he needed to do something to pass the time until the kids in the cabin fell asleep. Thinking back, he remembered a ghost story he heard years ago. When he told the story, something clicked; the kids in the cabin liked it and clamored for more. From that point on, Alan continued to tell stories in the cabin after lights out, around bonfires, while out on camping trips. For years, Alan's ghost stories and humorous tales kept everyone huddled close to the campfire. In time, his repertoire of stories grew to include folktales and legends, as well as his own fantasy tales. He moved north to Pittsburgh in 1984, and continued to expand his repertoire and to hone his craft.

Watch in on the big screen

On September 18th, we will be watching Bleach 1 & Yu-Gi-Oh, the movie at the Coyle Free Library. The movies start at 1 pm. And if you get the munchies while here, we will have various appropriate movie snacks such as popcorn, gummy bears, licorice, etc.

What the future holds

We have started to plan teen activities at the Coyle Free Library for the fall and here is what we have so far:
September 18 @ 1pm: We will be watching Bleach 1: Memories of Nobody & Yu-Gi-Oh, the movie.
October (date to be confirmed): Ghost Stories
November 20 @ 2pm: Poker Tournament
December 11 @ 2pm: White Elephant Gift Exchange & movie

Thanks to all that participated this summer. We had an awesome turnout at the concert. Thanks to those who performed and helped set up for the concert!

No pool party but come rock out in August

Just wanted to let everyone know that the pool party scheduled for July 10th has been canceled due to low registrations. Sorry if this disappoints anyone.

But make sure to mark your calendars and come out on August 14th @ 6:30 pm for our fund-raising concert at Grove Family Library. Chasing May will be the feature band with a couple of local bands opening, including Revolution Moment. It will cost $5 at the door and food will be available for purchase. The funds raised will help support teen and tween programs at the Coyle & Grove Libraries.

Time to cool off!

What better way to cool off this summer than to go swimming. On July 10th, we will be having a pool party at the Chambersburg Municipal Pool from 2 - 4 pm. You have to register online so we have a list to give to the pool for who is going to be there. Click here to register! No food will be provided so bring a little cash to get something at the concession stand.

Since we are almost done with January

It is time to talk about the great activities that are happening in February! First, and most excitingly, we have rescheduled the benefit concert for the teen that was canceled back in December to now be on February 20th. Now it will be even bigger and better as we have 4 local teen bands playing! The one band is called Revolution Moment and I will be releasing the other bands names as I get them. There is still a cost to come but it will be $5 at the door. It will be at the Grove Family Library on February 20th at 7 pm.

Also on February 20th from 11 am - 1 pm, you can show what you got at "Grove's Got Talent". This is for tweens (9 - 14 yrs old) who want to show off their talent in either music, art, fashion, magic, stand-up, and sports. You do need to sign up so call the Grove Family Library at 717-264-9663.

Another February activity is Book Bingo at Grove Family Library. This event benefits the tween group. It was very successful and a lot of fun the first time around. It is on February 5th from 6 - 8 pm.

Lastly, time to get your dancing shoes on. We will be having Disco Karaoke on February 27th at the Coyle Free Library from 2 - 4 pm.
